1st Time User with New Account (5 posts)

    Just opened a new WordPress.org account today at about 1.15pm and I’m not receiving a new user password so we can sign in for the first time.
    The reason for this is because I left out by mistake a letter from my email address. So all password are being sent to nowhere, to an email address that does not exist.
    I have tried to open a new account but it won’t let me do so as I’m now told the user name is being used!
    We want to keep the user name as it relates to our business. To post this “can you help me” we have opened a temp account.

    Can any admin member of wordpress.org help please?

    Thanks.

    wordpress.org distributes and documents the WordPress application but has no connection with any site running that software. Is this a wordpress.com site or a self-hosted WordPress install?

    The login for the new account was started here http://wordpress.org/support/register.php.

    It’s a self hosted option we and want NOT the WordPress.com

    Does this help?

    Do you have a self-hosted site set up? Your account here is unrelated to any self-hosted site. For your site, see: http://codex.wordpress.org/Resetting_Your_Password

    Yes the self hosted account is fully setup. No blog or website has yet been developed.

    I think I have sorted the issue out of inputting the email address wrong to start with and then not being able to use the username that was first signed up with and then though I needed.
    I have found some useful YouTube videos that explain that after the self hosting has been setup the username that I first provided along with the email when I signed up with WordPress @ http://wordpress.org/support/register.php is really only going to be used with when communication through the forum...that’s if I have understood the YouTube videos correctly.
